I don’t know about you, but I am hearing stories from every corner of women who have been so triggered by the past few weeks it has been hard to get out of bed.

Where do we go from here?
I don’t have all the answers, but we need to talk about it.
Please join me Monday evening to begin that discussion — on Facebook Live at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern.
